Warmer temperatures breed algae in a swimming pool
For those swimming pools with mesh winter covers that allow sunlight through, too much sunlight can spell days of work to get the pool up to ideal swimming conditions.
As for the expense of opening your swimming pool early, some will argue that it costs more to do so. In reality though, given today’s availability of highly efficient salt chlorine systems and variable speed motors, the chemical and electrical costs can be nominal.Then, there’s the pollen. It wreaks havoc on in-ground swimming pool water that is not circulating, and cleaning it up just adds to the chore and expense. With the early pollen arrivals of the past few years, it certainly isn’t a bad idea to open your pool sooner than later, allowing your filter to help with the job before it gets out of hand.
In any event, whether you have an above ground pool or an in-ground swimming pool, the basic steps found below for opening them are fairly similar. Many of them are also included in the services we offer.
